3:03 am
little bit. sometimes he needs to fight and sometimes he needs to let it play out. what happened with mccabe yesterday really puts some questions into the investigation naturally. >> i think the gig is up. >> the gig is up but let it play out. >> i think it's smart tactically to let it play out but it's smart to point out it's gone on this long with this many resources, nothing to show for it except mike flynn who gave 33 years to the country, five in combat lying under oath. >> the president's personal attorney john dodd putting out a statement saying, quote, i pray that acting ternl rosen stein will follow the office of the fbi of responsibility and bring on end to the collusion of the russia investigation
3:04 am
manufactured by james comey. you can see the same message about the fake dossier, the investigation. unfair. and i think it's clear that the president and his legal team are trying to pounce on the mccabe problem at the fbi to say that the investigators were crooked from the start. now they're praising jeff sessions about a week or so after the president was saying he's a disaster. >> no longer beleaguered. >> we'll put that aside. secondly, the president has said i'm ready to sit down with robert mueller and he's ready to talk because he has nothing to hide. now we're hearing that john dodd put that out there because he eve gotten a list of what questions robert mueller wants to ask the president open they're saying shut it down. if they've got nothing to hide, talk to mueller and get this over with. >> they're not saying shut it down. the left wing media are saying, democrats all across the spectrum saying we have to
3:05 am
protect mueller. they're going to fire mueller. what they're saying is if you've got something come with it. >> they also say that i pray rod rosenstein shuts it down. >> well. >> yeah. james comey by the way is not going away in this story. he was tweeting last night. >> oh good. >> the gift he's giving. he's writing a book by the way so he says, mr. president the american people will hear my story very soon, referring to his book. and they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not. >> he has credibility problems, among other issues. james comey was there for the, as the president and his team calls the fake dossier used for the first fisa application to sur cartesurveil carter page. they said this is good enough to spy on an american. fast forward a couple months
3:06 am
later, january 2017 james comey briefs trump on the same document saying it's unverified. which is it? was it verified or unverified he lied to the fisa court or the president of the united states. >> he liedly omission by not telling the president who paid for that dossier. he knew at the time, the dnc. >> and didn't tell the fisa court. >> and he didn't tell the conversation to the president that got leaked. >> he and or andy mccabe may have problems based on the statement that he put out after he was fired yesterday. i'm going to show you a positioner of what andy mccabe said and we're going to play you a tape from james comey. you try to determine who is telling the truth. andy mccabe said this, he said, the oig information has focused on information i chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer. as deputy director of the fbi i was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that.
3:07 am
it was not a secret. it took place over several days, including the director. that's director comey. they were aware of my interaction. take that and then james comey was asked by senator chuck grassley about a year ago, may of last year, about leaking at the fbi. listen to what he had to say. >> director comey, have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> never. >> question, the two relatively related. have you ever authorized someone else at the fbi to be an anonymous source in news reports about the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> no. >> that was under oath. that was under oath, mr. comey. >> somebody is lying. one of the things that he said, correct me if i'm wrong, ed, did
3:08 am
mccabe not say that he was continuing to talk to the press with authorization with christopher wray as well? >> i didn't see that part of the statement just to be honest. >> i thought i read that. we'll double-check that. >> it was pretty important. he said including the director. this is the same andy mccabe that said i'm going to take anybody down with me that i need to. we've heard that through reporting that that may be what he said. it could turn out that the fbi could start to unravel as they start to point at each other. >> and we're hearing that andy mccabe kept his memos about interaction with mr. trump corroborating some interactions with the president that iary. they're going to give that to special counsel mueller. >> john dodd, when he's talking about rose rose stein, he's sayg you need to control the
3:09 am
investigation if you got it, go on from there, if you don't, end it. >> i'll tell you what i was laser focused on yesterday, that you guys conceding at the basketball court. charles payne was on yesterday and he had his pick. >> who you got on the threen shooting contest, me or ed. >> i'm going with ed. >> i love it. >> yes, yes! >> yes! >> the better man won. i was defeated by ed. >> there's the grand shot. >> you know, i'm telling you, i just have one-word reaction. >> sad. >> it is sad. i feel like i let a lot of people down. >> the question is we've gotted to pyro going out taking a polar plunge later in the show.
3:10 am
>> we have a dunk tank and we're going to decide which one of these guys go in. >> the fact they lost the three-point contest yesterday has nothing to do with whether i get dunked today. send ed into the dunk tank on behalf of all of us. we love him. >> he's a sand-in for anderson cooper today. >> you see ed, you see rachel maddow. >> go to our social media platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram, cast your vote. me or pete. we've already fought that out and i won. >> the three-point contest has nothing to do with the dunk tank. the smart moves spin. they do. you know that. >> well, we have actually got some serious news. i got to get to the headlines here. new overnight, police recovering all victims from the scene of a catastrophic bridge collapse. >> although we expected that perhaps we may find more,

3:15 am
3:16 am
newly unemployed andrew mccabe, the former fbi deputy director said to have kept memos on his dealings with the president and has provided those to the special counsel robert mueller. he learned from the best, i guess, his former boss james comey who also kept memo memos. are these memos to be trusted? here to weigh in, a former fbi agent who said firing mccabe was necessary. you can see in the op-ed, i'm hearing a lot of criticism, particularly from the left that the idea that this was president trump striking back and firing mccabe. what say you? >> i say no. i say his fingerprints are nowhere to be found on this action. and the ag's fingerprints are barely there. this was the office of professional responsibility within the fbi. a recommendation from a career
3:17 am
person there who's b been there for 14 years, probably through director wray and then the attorney general. this is the fbi cleaning its own house. the fbi taking tough medicine the get the body better. >> you say the president doesn't have any fingerprints but he did send out tweets. i'm not saying that proved that he fired him. you're right about the office of professional responsibility. but the president tweeting he shouldn't get his pension, should be fired. and that led mccabe in his statement to say what the president is trying to do, push me out, damage my credibility so i will be crippled as a witness before the mueller probe. what do you think about that? >> not to use a cliche but that's like the rooster taking credit for the dawn. this was going to happen regardless. i understand andy mccabe's defense. i would use it too. he's fighting for his pension. this is not something to
3:18 am
celebrate. but i heard from many of my colleagues after the op-ed who say thanks for laying this out. the institution itself is far more important than one person. there's always a standard of zero tolerance for lying under oath. >> when you talk about lying under oath what do you say as a former fbi agent to the fact that the top two men formerly at the fbi have a problem with lying. we played this clip of comey saying under oath he didn't know anything about leaking when mccabe is saying the opposite, that commie approved some of the leaking. and you have the office of professional responsibility saying that mccabe was leaking and lying. these were the top two people at the fbi. >> i've been saying all along that aim of th all of the critil at the fbi should int focused in on that inner circle of jim comey. we always like jim comey, a personable smart guy.
3:19 am
but something happened during his short tenure as an fbi director. this never happened under mueller. i served under mueller two yiers, over 500 meetings with him, i never saw a hint of this behavior, no leaks, no grabbed standing with the press, understood the role an approached it with humility. >> what's your bot time line moving forward. we have the justice department inspector general report coming out shortly, robert mueller is still out there and we don't know what he does have or does not have on the president. >> i think if you brush aside all of the politics, the inspector general, another career position is going to come out with an explosive report that covers more than just mccabe. it's going to cover strzok, page, orr, all of the players in the hillary clinton e-mail investigation, it's going to address that and i think it's going to be comprehensive. there's more coming from the special prosecutor, special counsel. i think there's many signals
3:20 am
that inth something is coming on april. an interesting month in april. >> we'll be following it. appreciate you coming in meanwhile the pc police are going medieval. the college of holy cross considering dropping its night mascot. our next guest say it's yet another example of social justice warriors simply destroying our history. an 80-year-old nun claims she's broke thanks to katy perry. why she says the pop star is ruining her life.

quick headlines. russians are voting right now in their presidential election as vladimir putin seeks power for other 60 years. six years. there have been reports of voter center violations, including ballot boxes being placed out of the sight of cameras. with seven challengers, putin is expected to win. sounds like a slam dunk. chinese president xi jinping officially approved to his post for life. rachel. thank you, ed. political correctness on college campuses continues. the college at the holy cross of massachusetts now dropping its mascot, an immayry to avoid tie to the crusade. >> the president saying the
3:25 am
visual depiction of the knight inevitably ties us to the reality of the religious wars and the violence of the crusade. over the coming months the college will phase out the use of all knight related imagery. >> is this another way of caving to concerns of islamophobia? here to weigh in, lawrence jones. hi, lawrence. >> good morning, family. how are you doing? >> what have you say this? >> this is just another example of the political correctness that we cover all of the time at the leadership campus reform on these college campuses. you know the social justice warriors and the speech police are out to destroy history. we said it back when they were trying to remove monuments, when they were trying to destroy property, that these people wanted to destroy history. and the problem is where does it stop? >> that's what i was going say. take this to its logical end. let's remove the cross from the
3:26 am
name holy cross because ultimately that's what the crusaders were defending, correct? >> exactly. here's the deal. if these -- 48 professors signed on to this. and if they wanted to have a genuine conversation they would say both sides did things that weren't pretty at times but they were defending what they felt was right. sometimes they were barbaric, sometimes doing what they felt was right at the end of the day. but instead of doing that they decided to pick a side and signed with the anti-christian narrative that is often on these college campuses >> the crusades happen. chris christians fought back. both sides did things that judged by today's sand disard would not. be acceptable. but when you erase it hous how u
3:27 am
have the conversation? >> it prevents the conversation. when it came to the monuments, many people wanted to erase people like benjamin franklin who actually owned slaves but he turned around and wanted to free slaves. think about dr. king. he was a womanizer and did a lot of things that wasn't, you know right pu behe also was a powerful figure in american history that led people to washington, to stood up for civil rights. you can cherry pick pretty much everyone, except for jesus christ in the united states. >> i don't know, jesus christ said in matthew 10:34 i come not to bring peace, to bring a sword. he's a crusader too. you could be pigeon holed right now as an apologist for the crusades. you're accepting -- take that argument on. that's what you're defending, right? >> that's the argument that the left wants to have and honestly pete, when they make that, you
3:28 am
know, argument, they're trying to shut down the actual debate. this -- colleges should be a place where young people are able to learn. and able to make decisions based on the facts. what we have in these professionerprofessorsis telline story. what they say is you're racist or islamophobeic when you have these conversations because nobody wants to be called a racist were a bigot or a sympathizer for extremists. >> but lawrence, it's particularly frustrating because it's a catholic college. it's a catholic university. >> right. >> and it's frustrating. i propose they changed their mos cot to the holy unicorn. >> change everything. screw history. let's just change it all. >> back in the day the pope led those crusades. history is history. thank you for your time. >> thank you, lawrence. >> we reached out to the college
3:29 am
of the holy cross, no comment. >> no surprise there. yet another store following in the footsteps of dick's sporting goods pulling guns off of thai their shelves. "saturday night live" brings back old cast member to mock the latest shakeup. >> rexcy, i'm sorry about what happened. you and i, we're kind of the same now, right? >> no. no.>> here to react coming up n. >> tech: at safelite autoglass

grip. maybe they need some christ in their life, just maybe. >> that's right. >> well now she says in her statement, i'm catholic. this is who i am. but the mocking of, yeah, yeah, yeah, god's will. do people see through so much of the left-wing media and they despise oftentimes this belief. >> they despise christianity. if you believe in god, if you have faith, if you pray, oh, god, may prayers go out to you. they hate that. i don't know what that's about. they're trying to turn our country into a secular country. they don't want us to believe in god anymore. the left needs to get a grip. get a grip. we believe in god. we're christians and we shouldn't be mocked, accused of anything. we should be able to live out our faith and it should be okay to do that, and serve our country. >> get a grip. a good way to end.

3:47 am
state over the cliff. they've really mismanaged this state, made it the poverty capital of the country. we're the venezuela of america. we've got the highest cost, the most people in poverty and then they do stunts like this which are only serving to anger people and make them afraid of what the government is going to do next. i mean, they've given undocumented people driver's licenses. a lot of people think that they're voting. and again, it's all part of covering up their mismanagement, distracting people from the lousy roads and lousy education and the horrible business environment we have out here, which i'm going to correct by the way as governor. >> so first of all, they allow driver's license, in-state tuition, you can practice law if you're an illegal immigrant. you're running for governor. this is this something that the democrats and the elites, the rich who maybe benefit from

impact on the government. but it's done in order to make it so we can't pay attention to the real problems they've created. >> we've got to leave it there. you've got a beautiful state, a lot of wonderful people but a pile of problems that someone is going to have to fix in the days ahead. thanks for joining us. >> most of it is the politicians. that's the problem. it's the politicians fault. >> you got your two cents in. we appreciate it. coming up, identity politics dividing our country and taking us to a place of no return? the tiger mom has a brand-new book out and will be here to tell us all about it. the elderly will outnumber kids in the united states for the first time in america history. what does that mean for society and the economy. we're going to discuss that next. you see my resume. you imagine who i am. what i look like.

3:53 am
welcome pack. back. the census bureau suggesting for the first time ever that the population of elderly people will outnumber the number of children in our country by the year 2035. you see those trend lines. what does this mean for our society and the economy. here to discuss the chair of the
3:54 am
program and business of finance at the kings college right here in new york city city, my good friend brian. we're going to have more older folks than we're going to be kids by 2035. why does that matter? >> it matters for so many reasons. the most practical reason is young people pay for the retirement of our older citizens. if you see births rates declining and you see life expectancies increasing the way they are, we can't pay for things like social security, medicare and et cetera. that's why by 2034 you see social security cutting benefits. so that's number one. the economy grows faster when you have younger people in the economy because they're driving innovation, entrepreneurship. as the population ages, you the economy slows down. >> why are we having less kids today? >> it's a massive cultural question but one of the things is the strength of the economy when the economy goes in the tank, you see birthrates
3:55 am
decline. we've been an an incline for a while. one with of the reasons we need to get the economy growing in a sustainable way, that gives people the resources to have kids. that pays off long term. that's why we saw the tax credit and the recent tax credit double it helps people who have the kids. >> europe is a preview of us. we've seen declining birthrates in europe for a long time, expansion of welfare states, opening up their borders. what has been the implication of that? >> they have to. if you're not having children and you have a big pension system, the only way to pay for it is to bring people into your country. but that creates all sorts of sul churl issues as well. when you're not having children, then you have an immigration debate on your plate and you have no choice but to bring people in. it's important for the people in the united states to have children long term, it's how to we car for them and keep america
3:56 am
growing. >> you have a lot of kids, it creates a healthy cultural environment. >> there's nothing better that you can do than have children who can drive things going forward. >> thank you for your time. all right. democrats offering andrew mccabe jobs so he can qualify for his pension. these three have given him opportunity to sign on to their teams. but are we supposed to feel bad for andrew mccabe ? >> w we've got ed henry in a duk tank coming up. stay with us. brought to you by more than a thousand workers in boston. we're proud of giving you our best. gillette - the best a man can get.

three-point shooting contest, me or ed. >> i'm going to ed. >> yes, yes. >> we are the dunk tank. we're going to see side which one of these guys go in. ♪ ♪ well, yesterday we fowbd out that pete can't sink a three-pointer but can he get a dunk in, a slam dunk. >> america, send this man to the dunk tank. he's a lefty. you know what that means. >> you are crafty. >> the problem is the audience is against you. i've been looking at my twit wer sob is ed. even though he's a stand in for anderson cooper today, you seem to be the one everybody wants to see in the tank. >> it's all selective editing by the producers. the three-point contest had nothing to do with the dunk
4:02 am
tank. >> pete is winning, 53% of the viewers want to see him dunked . >> these are early returns coming from the urban centers. the real population is still sleeping. when they wake up, we're going to flip those numbers. send our journalists into the dunk tank. >> i love that. >> but it's ed and rachel and we're having a great sunday. >> we are. >> the one person not going in the dunk tank is me. i told you guys i would not do that. >> you can write her in. we could have a late challenge. >> not happening. >> like the jill stein in the durchdunk tank. president trump and his legal team taking direct aim at robert mueller and his investigation. it started with a statement from one of the president's attorneys and then the tweet from the president saying the mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. it was based on fraudulent activities and a fake dossier paid for by crooked hillary and
4:03 am
the dnc and improperly used in fisa court for surveillance of my campaign. witch hunt. that came after the statement from john dodd that made it seem like they had a new strategy here. >> here's the statement. i pray that acting attorney general rosenstein will follow the office of responsibility and bring an end to alleged russia collusion investigation manufactured by mccabe's boss james comey based on a fraudulent and corrupt dossier. >> because attorney general sessions recuse recused himself, rosenstein is overseeing what bob mueller is doing. who knows what the questions are. you mentioned the questions have been submitted to the white house. >> the mueller team has said these are some of the questions that we could ask him. >> what if they're questions about financial dealings, nothing do with the collusion. that's all speculation.
4:04 am
we don't know. for a lot of us we're looking at mueller saying with, the gig is up. whatever you got i you got. >> there was a "the new york times" saying that the mueller subpoenaed documents from the trump that alarmed people in the white house because they say this may be getting far afield. >> the democrats are in wha a bx here. they spent the last year setting up what the special counsel's conclusions are about to be about and that's collusion. no matter what they do in the special counsel, go into the business dealings or not, the american people are focused was there collusion or not. and frankly the democrats set that standard up. if the investigation come to a conclusion and there is no collusion, which is what it looks like, i think it's going to be a did. >dud.>> and then the firing of w mccabe, that they see as an alarm bell they're going to fire bob mueller.
4:05 am
a lot of us look at it no, there's finally accountability for people who lie at the fbi. >> and the office of professional responsibility at the fbi, nonpartisan, an internal watchdog, they're the ones that suggested that mccabe should tb go. >go.>> part of the reason the ma is sup yet about mccabe, he's been caught. he's a liar. if he has anything to do with the investigation, his credibility is shot. the media is nervous in this story, so are the democrats. they want collusion. they want collusion. and the firing of mccabe, i think, is a signal that we're probably not going to get what we want at the end. >> the other guy that was fired before james comey has been tweeting ever since then, he's writing a book. he kept memos of his conversations with president trump. now we're learning that so did andy mccabe. we learned that he took notes about meetings he had with president trump and he's handed them over to bob mueller's team
4:06 am
and th.ed asked about trump's h, are they clean of this fire. listen. >> i say his fingerprints are nowhere to be founded on this action. and the ag's fingerprints are barely there. i understand andy mccabe's defense on this. i would use it too. he's fighting for his pension, his reputation. and nobody is happy about this. this is not something to celebrate. the institution itself is far more important than one person. and there's always been a standard of zero tolerance for lying under oath. >> zero tolerance for lying and yet the top two people at the fbi we believe did lie under oath. we played a clip earlier of james comey telling chuck grassley that he was not involved in leaking even though mccabe was suggesting otherwise. and mccabe was fired because of leaking and he lied to the investigators looking into this. what does this say about the fbi
4:07 am
that's supposed to be nonpartisan, umpires that you can respect and count on. the top two officials were liars. >> and we saw the tweet from john brennan, incredibly exceedingly par partisan in the tone. guy in charge of it, andy mccabe who was supposed to be looking at hillary clinton e-mails exonerated her. now he's a liar and a leaker, you may need more accountability. >> your guest made such a great point. andrew mccabe was not fired by donald trump. he was fired by his own colleagues in the fbi. democrats have jumped in, and the media as well, because. >> colleagues. >> so andrea mitchell yesterday put out a tweet suggesting a way for andrew mccabe to get a full pension despite the ruling
4:08 am
yesterday, the tiger tha firingd have delay his pension. >> he's going to get a partial pension maybe at the age of 57 instead of getting the early one at 50 that would get g him a lot more money. the point is that there are some in the media suggesting that look, if a democratic member of congress hires mccabe, even for just a few days, it will get him over the finish line for a full pension. you have a democrat saying andrew call me. i could use a good two-day report on the biggest crime families in washington, d.c. clearly trying again to take a partisan poke at the president. but also you know, this whole notion -- we had other tweets swalwell. >> others jumped in. pocasn is interesting. gave the key to the city to fidel castro. it's a liberal thing. i'm going to help andrew mccabe with your money.
4:09 am
which is just. >> this is taxpayer money. taking money out of your pocket. that's the point. >> we asked diamond and silk, you know them, social media star about this. >> how is it that the democrats want to offer mccabe a job so he can have money in his pocket but they wouldn't come to the table for the law abiding american to make sure we have more money. what do the testimonies hav dem? maybe we need to bring in a special prosecutor to watch the democrats and mccabe. we know mueller is going to turn a blind eye. >> and mccabe needs to be more concerned about going to prison instead of getting a pension. >> that's right. >> give a dog a bone. that was a pretty good line. >> that was a very good line. and i don't know what they are implying with collusion. i think what the democrats are doing is trying to restore his
4:10 am
reputation. we know he's a liar and a leaker, that's why he was fired by his own colleagues in the fbi and the democrats are scrambling to restore him because they're hoping that the memos that he. >> there's still this abiding hope on the left side of the spectrum that bob mueller will save the day. >> the president has consist consistently said there's nothing here. let's have transparency. devin nunes put his memo out there, showed the fisa abuse. people doubted it on the left, the center all around and yet he showed it in the memo. let's see the mccabe memos. what do you have? >> devin nunes was on watters' world last night. one of the democratic memos, e-mail me wit the memo. i got to get to some
4:11 am
headlines. overnight, police recovering all victims from the scene of a catastrophic bridge collapse. >> although we expected that perhaps we may find more, thankfully we did not. despite that we're going to go once again and make sure that there's nobody else down there. >> five bodies removed in the 950-ton wreckage. a sixth person died at the hospital. search and rescue workers still clearing the scene at florida international university. a moment of silence will be held tomorrow on campus at 1:47 p.m. congress is returning to work tomorrow with five day to avoid another government shutdown. a friday deadline looming after months after deals to keep the government funded. the last spending bill was supposed to help pass a longer term deal but bipartisan hurdles remain. lawmakerlawmakers intend for ths deal to be the last of the 2018

the pressure continues to build for a second special counsel after andrew mccabe's firing at the fbi. and this statement the ousted deputy director released reading in part, the this attack on may credibility is one parts of a larger effort to slam me personally and to taint the fbi, lawrchlt and intelligence professionals more generally. part of this administration's ongoing war on the fbi and the efforts of the special counsel investigation which continue to this day. mark penn is a former clinton strategist and the author of a new book. you got to pick it up. joining us now with his reaction. we appreciate you joining us. i wonder when i spoke to you
4:17 am
briefly on friday night, you were suggesting that when you heard that statement from mccabe it seemed to be written more by a political strategist than a legal strategy. >strategist.>> i was frankly qud having spent a year with president clinton fighting independent counsels and going through situations like this. rather than contrition for having been found to lack candor, a euphemism for lying by the office of professional responsibility, mccabe came out swinging with a statement that really looked like it had been written by a political consultant. maybe his wife's political consultant. i don't know. rather than by a lawyer. concerned that he would be dieted. indicted. and in the process the attorney general reading that says wow, we got to appoint a special counsel because he's alleged a political conspiracy. saying that the office of professional responsibility is part of a political conspiracy. >> in fairness, obviously andrew
4:18 am
mccabe has a right in this country to tell his side of the story. but if he has some dirt he ought to bring it forward. but as you suggest, he was in the middle of the fisa abuse, for example. he was there overseeing the clinton e-mail investigation, questions about how he handled that. how do we not have a second special counsel at this point? >> at this point also his firins why it's created so much controversy -- really says look, all of this reporting on what's been going on in the justice department, it's for real because this is not from the republicans. it's from the independent -- from this office of professional responsibility. and it's also from the inspector general. and either we completely believe that every one of these institutions is following donald trump on we think there's something here that needs to be investigated. >> let's shift gears and talk a little bit about congressional politics and the midterms. democrats got some good news this week pending legal
4:19 am
recounts. but in pennsylvania '18 special election, the district as you know the president carried by 20 points, yet it looks like the democrat won. but he did it by basically running against nancy pelosi saying he wouldn't vote for her as speaker. and there are some in the democratic party saying it's simply time for her to go. what say you? >> in my latest poll pelosi is 29 available 51 unavailable. she's clearly a target, much like when i ran things in midterms, newt gingrich was a target. she's more of a liability for democrats than he's someone who is going to help democrats across the finish line, at least in terms of the public. the democratic party of conor lamb is really powerful. but a polocy, sanders and warren, that is way to the left. >> mark, real quick. i was struck by nancy pelosi firing back at conor lamb and her critics, not him directly but the notion that he was
4:20 am
against her by saying all of the republicans want to do is attack me personally. they're about personal attacks instead of issues. haven't the democrats led by pelosi, they've been doing nothing but attacking the president. >> well, look, 90% of our political ads that are now negative ads. so everybody attacks everybody. i don't think that attack means anything. it's center versus the left. which democratic party are we going to see in the midterms. one is more powerful than the other. >> you got to check out the new book. we appreciate you joining us this morning. the pc police going medieval. the college of holy cross considering dropping i its its t mascot. tiger mom here is live taking on identity politics. we'll do that next. broccoli!

4:25 am
we're all tribal. think of march madness. we like our sports. and there's nothing bad about that. but the problem is once we connect to a tribe, we cling to it and we want to defend it no matter what, which is great if you're talking about family. but when tribalism takes over a political system, then we can't have a conversation anywhere. it's almost like people -- you see any news item breaking and peep just instantly take their sides. we can't -- it used to be that americans were much more -- there's a big overlap between republicans and democrats. now it's almost like we just can't talk to each other. we don't see the other side as fellow americans. >> you wrote originally about kids. it's starting at a young age. if you talk to little kids, they're teaching now the salad bowl. so is the problem really a lack of assimilation and also a sort of rejection of patriotism? couldn't that bring us together,
4:26 am
asill las vegas and pay treism? > -- assimilationand patriotism. >> i'm irish american, japanese american, you can be intensity patriotic at the same time. now i think we've overcorrected a little bit. it's important that we say look, let's not sanitize our history. some things are not as simple as they -- it's just more complicated. we must teach our children that this is a special country. that's what holds us together. if you have in reason to believe in your country, i mean why is it even a country. and i think it's important to be honest but also to find way to connect us all. >> you mean a lot of our universities like yale, you've got a huge focus on identity politics, racial identity or gender i identity. is that part of the issue? >> yes, and it's on both sides of the political spectrum.
4:27 am
it's never black and white. everybody wants to say is it all this fault. i get it. if you belong to a group, you're proud to be whatever, italian american or this. but the problem is when we go into our groups and then we harden the lines and we say -- we start to play this game of gotcha. oh my god, you said that wrong. i don't think it should be -- we should be more generous. there are a lot of people angst about the direction that the country is going it's changing. it's not the country i used to know. that's understandable. that's just -- so instead of saying oh my gosh. >> you're a racist. >> talk. let's pur persuade. that's part of the problem with all of this. it's like a silencing. and also it becomes like a vocabulary game. i'm so well trained on a college campus to say exactly the right thing. but oh my gosh, if people phrase it a certain way, it's like what is their intention. if they are just trying to have
4:28 am
a conversation, what's the use of just calling them a terrible name. what that does it, it pushes people further apart and drives people underground. >> on college campuses and in society in general, there's a competition for victimhood. yes, you're rewarded. i think the reason people are doing that, they're competing or as you said they're trying to find the gotcha moment. their victimhood elevates them and gives them special privileges. >> it's exactly backwards from the american story. >> yes, yes, yes. >> and i think you and i are both immigrants. >> yes. >> and it's always like, you know, i remember my father when he first came here, no money at all. and i don't they necessarily looked so great. my dad wore the same pair of shoes for ten years. he thought this was the greatest country. >> mine too. >> look upwards, look at the best in people. high expectations. parents things that i got in a lot of trouble for.
4:29 am
hold them to high expectations. so yes when you're looking at the bottom, how low -- am i more unhappy than you. it's just not the way that -- it's not the confidence and the optimism that really built this country. >> the president said in his inauguration when you open your heart to patriotism there is no way for prejudice. the way we unite 2009 the core principles, the less we see the division. >> that's what we need to work on. they're like dignity. >> justice. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> and we all need to elevate ourselves. >> it's fabulous discussion. thank you for having it, even from yale. good for you. >> political tribe another member of the media appears to mock the christian faith of larry kudlow. >> god's will? the position he's in now, he has to stand there and represent

the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro?

strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro.

welcome back former obama cia director brennan tweeting that america will quote triumph over you. >> and now samantha power, former ambassador is weighing in. >> she tweeted it was quote not a good idea to bleep off john brennan. well does that sound like a threat to you? here with reaction is david bossy, former trump deputy campaign management, fox news
4:46 am
contributor. thanks for being here. really appreciate it. samantha powers says you don't want to tick off john brennan. where is she coming from? >> this is the deep state. this is what president trump has been talking about since his campaign. there are people in washington who cover up for themselves, who run this permanent class of bureaucracy in washington, d.c. that is trying to defeat this president. and let's just remember, john brennan is the same man who spied on the united states senate. he is the same leader of the cia that lied about spying on the united states senate. a violation, direct violation of our constitution. and then when he's caught at doing it, he denies doing it then of course it comes out that he did it. look. this is ridiculous for these people who are political hacks appointed by barack obama, an
4:47 am
enemy, clearly an enemy of donald trump's were these people out there saying these thing. i discount it. >> samantha power, people may have understand at what rate he was unmasking. right before the inauguration she was unmasking at such a rate that it was like a year's worth of individuals. it was actually quite astounding. what's interesting to me about this is that now they're not even hiding the fact that they're the deep state and that can cause retribution against you if you cross them. they're not pretending that they're not doing that anymore. >> to say don't bleep off john brennan is a joke. first of all, john brennan and powers and the rest of them. they still have their cohorts throughout the government. that's what they're trying to say. that's what presidents historically are told don't mess with the intelligence divisions of this country. when you come into office, these
4:48 am
are the long term place. don't do it. guess what. this president has said enough is enough and i'm going to speak truth to power. let's also -- let's not forget it was a robert mueller appointed deputy fbi director who heatdz the office of personal responsibility -- professional responsibility inside the fbi that recommended mccabe be fired. let's go back to the essence of this. these people are attacking it as a political act but it was really the fbi policing themselves. >> fair point. that's ax absolutel absolutely . are you worried, anyone in the trump campaign worried that it was a justifying firing because of the office of professional responsibility saying that mccabe lied and leaked, but now you've got a guy who has been terminated, is losing a full pension and now he hear he kept memos about conversations with the president.
4:49 am
is anyone worried in the trump camp he's going to strike back? >> these fbi ght as and throughout history fbi agents have kept records of every conversation they have. that's what they're trained to do. this is no surprise that mccabe, just like comey, would be pronouncing that they have memos about the conversations with the president. it's going to show what the president has been saying, mccabe is a political hack, his wife was a politician democrat operative close to democrat leadership within, you know, the democratic party. i'm not surprised that he's going to now try to become a political leader if you will. >> we hear questions have been submitted potentially from the bob mueller probe. any concerns at the white house where that's going, briefly? >> no. look. this president wants to make sure that the truth is out there. there was no russian collusion. let's go back to that's what this investigation was about. russian collusion, cooperation.

in the meantime as we say, they're cryptic cli tweeting all of the time. this is what james comey said in the tweet. mr. president, the american people will hear my story very seen and they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not. now we know andy mccabe was a leaker and a liar and we know from the background of james comey he was a leaker and a liar. now we don't know which one of them in this particular case about leaking is telling the truth as well. >> mccabe said in his statement, he talked about the inspector general investigation saying quote, it's focused on information i chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer and a legal counselor as deputy director of the fbi. one of only few people who had
5:06 am
the authority to do that. was not a secret. and others including the direct wer, james comey was was aware of the interaction with the reporter. that's interesting. mr. james comey, holding himself out there as a saint, attacking the president nonstop, about to go on a book tour. this is actually on tape, mr. comey, may 2017 you were asked under oath about leaking. >> director comey, have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> never. >> question two on relatively related. have you ever authorized someone else at the fbi to be an anonymous source in news reports about the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> somebody is not telling the truth. >> but this is what happens with
5:07 am
liars. they can't get their stories straight. i think it speak to all of the lies and corruption all together. >> it's a coverup, almost alwaye coverup is maybe not even -- they're both bad. they're covering up for something where they used our intelligence assets politically. we've heard that andy mccabe has said, i'm going to take them all down with me. he feels like she's be focused -- it could be anybody down, anybody up. and anything on collusion we could have seen. it would have been leaked to the front page of the "the new york times" immediately. >> et wil let's not forget, we d to a former fbi special agent earlier in the program talking about how this inspector general report at the justice department, we've been hearing about it coming out in the next couple of weeks. he's hearing that more shoes are going to drop for andy mccabe, james comey and others. as not just about misconduct and being fired, there are potentially criminal charges for andy mccabe. >> michael flynn 33 years in the
5:08 am
military, five years in combat. a mistruth or lie under oath and he's under attack from the mueller probe. the same thing standard should apply to anyone. and this office of inspector general, what a sleeper investigation that has been on throughout in providing all of the sunlight on this. and with that coming out for the mueller probe. >> strzok and page back and forth, the strzok-page text messages back and forth. people want to forget this but you can't. there may be more people implicated because of the text messages, they talked about an insurance policy in case donald trump is elected. talked about a meeting where in andy's office. >> so the inspector general's investigation is going to shed light on what the democrat -- some of the misdeeds by the democrats and the corruption there. but what's really -- i mean the big overall picture is mueller's special counsel and what i think that the democrats and the media are so concerned about and why i think they're jumping to the e

defense of mccabe and finding solutions for him to get his pension and restore his reputation, they've set this up for the last year that we will find collusion between trump. and if there's nothing there -- they set up this parameter. they are -- when this report comes out, if there's no luges collusion, what there they going to do? >> they're going to try to run on the midterm in 2018 to one on impeachment or talk about obstruction. you can turn on any other network and you can hear about obstruction of andy mccabe expwhr the.>> but the point is d collusion for so long if there is no collusion at the end of this, m noo matter what else thy find, they're in trouble. >> tell us what you think e-mail us. >> investigation of the president, investigation of the investigators. some are pushing for a second special coun counsel. >> i know you can't write what

5:18 am
the inspector general even if the president wanted mccabe fired, i don't see that he could have any influence on that decision so on its face the decision seems to be valid but i'd like to get behind the face of the decision and look at the report itself and see if the firing is justified. pete: professor we learned as ed said that he kept memos of his interactions with the president. is this common practice with those memos eventually make the light of day? >> well it is common practice particularly common practice when you expect there will be litigation and you can demonstrate the memos generally admissible even though they're here say but they're admissible if they were done contemporaneously and they shed some light on what happened. no matter what happened i don't think there's an obstruction of justice case against the president and all of the partisan wrangling valley dades there should have never been a
5:19 am
special prosecutor or special counsel this should have gone to a non-partisan commission like the 9/11 commission to look deeply into what impact the russians have tried to have on american elections. without pointing fingers without trying to criminalize political differences we would have gotten to the bottom of this without any partisan wrangling. right now the american public doesn't trust congressional committees, they don't trust the fbi, they don't trust the justice department but to have a non-partisan or bipartisan commission looking into this would have given the american public real credibility and real trust in what comes out of the investigation. i don't think we have that now. rachel: professor this is rachel so james comey is tweeting he sort of foreshadowing hey there's more information out of my book it's kind of part of his promotion for his book. is that dangerous? we just caught him in a lie or maybe mccabe is lying maybe he's lying but he's got a book coming out he's promising to talk about an investigation that's ongoing.
5:20 am
>> well special if there's anything that relates to grand jury minutes, look comey has explaining to do. he leaked information through a columbia law professor instead of having the courage to stand up in front of television camera s and say this is what i want to tell you this is the information and this is why i think a special counsel should be appointed he leaked the information and that's not a good model for the fbi to have the former head of the fbi engage in leaking and laundering information through a law professor and he has to explain that. i doubt he does in his book but i really look forward to seeing if he has any explanation. ed: on top of that you've got the number two official out for lying and leaking not good for the fbi we appreciate it counselor thanks for coming in. >> thank you. ed: the host of the hit show bar rescue does not take kindly to excuses so now john tapper is taking his no-nonsense approach from struggling bars to people turning their excuses into solutions he's here live coming up. rachel: and it might be the best video you see all day a high

ed: former obama cia director john brennan targeting the president in the wake of andrew mccabe's firing tweeting that america will triumph over you well samantha power former president obama's u.n. ambassador is also weighing in tweeting it was not a good idea to bleep off john brennan, so is that now a threat? here to debate political editor of town and a former state department official under president obama good to see you both. guy what do you make of this? i thought that the cia director was supposed to be a non- partisan position focused on intelligence not on politics he
5:47 am
takes this big shot at president trump and all of a sudden another obama loyalist comes out and says don't anger john brenna n, as if he's going to come back. yeah, or else what is sort of the response to samantha power who helped preside over a disastrous foreign policy but the tweet that bothered me more was the one from brennan, because what we've heard from a lot of people in the trump adminitration and trump supporters is theres this deep state out to undermine president trump and take him down and to see the partisan nature of the tweet from brennan, former cia director, to me was eye opening particularly because he's objecting to the firing of andrew mccabe from the fbi which was recommended by the ethics office inside the fbi based on a non partisan inspector general report. so i'm not someone who jumps in and piles on the fbi or the
5:48 am
so-called deep state all the time. in this case, i do think that the criticisms headed that direction are valid. ed: what do you think david? >> well, you know, first of all i think samantha powers tweet is hard to understand. the explanation you've given is plausible and in fact right it was improper for her to say that i don't think john brennan is going to do any deep state kind of maneuver as a result of this. john brennan has every right to tweet his opinions and his opinions are very strong goes to the heart of what a lot of people are thinking which is this was a partisan effort by president trump who made it clear to everyone in his administration that he wanted mccabe out and he wanted mccabe out right before his pension would have vested which was really petty and it showed to everyone. look if you're not going to, if you're going to do anything to protect mueller, anything to advance the special counsel investigation, then someone might retaliate against you and president trump puts pressure on everyone by doing that and
5:49 am
that's what everyone should be concerned about right now. as you said earlier, ed, we don't know what the department of justice ethics office said. no ones seen the report. we just know what sessions said about it and we also know that sessions himself lied under oath to the congress. ed: well he's been accused of that but guy i saw you shaking your head so i want to bring you in. >> yeah, so look mccabe we can talk about the president's response to mccabe's firing which i agree was petty but the purpose of the firing, the reason behind the firing is the inspector general report which by the way we ought to see i agree it should be released so we can take a look at it but the non-partisan career officials inside the fbi's office of professional responsibility which is their ethics office the woman in charge of that by the way was appointed by robert mueller they looked at the evidence from the non-partisan inspector general report which was initiated during the previous administration before trump was president from an
5:50 am
obama-appointee at the inspector general and they looked at that information and decided that it was the proper recourse. ed: i've got less than a minute is there another element that john brennan, and samantha power who have had their conduct questioned about the fisa abuse, about the unmasking of trump advisors maybe abuse of power they're striking because they're worried if there's a special special counsel that's named they're under the microscope. >> i don't think that's what's going on here. there are allegations being thrown all different ways. what we need to do is respect the rule of law. if there are allegations legitimate against anyone including any former obama administration official those should be brought forward in the proper way but we have to protect mueller and special counsel and fbi to do their job and that's not happening. ed: david there's accountability brought to mccabe. he lied, he leaked and now he's held accountable. >> that's what the process says. ed: we got to go.

6:05 am
got whatever it is robert mueller is going to come out with but we've got this clear evidence as more is exposed there's more contradictions which means a lot of people are under oath, a lot of people are putting their name on the line and called to account for that and part of the discrepancy the president has pointed out on twitter this morning and we've identified as well is what andrew mccabe said about leaking versus what james comey said about leaking both making clear how they feel about whether or not they were authorized to leak so here is andrew mccabe in a statement yesterday when he after he was fired he put out this statement a portion of which is here. he said the oig investigation has focused on information i chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer and a legal counsel. as deputy director of the fbi i was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that. it was not a secret, it took place over several days and others including the director and that's a key phrase -- ed: probably james comey. pete: were aware of the interaction with the reporter. ed: as i mentioned a moment ago
6:06 am
this is what james comey said when pressed by chuck grassley last year. >> director comey have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> never. >> question 2 on relatively related. have you ever authorized someone else at the fbi to be an anonymous source in news reports about the trump investigation or the clinton investigation? >> no. rachel: wow so one of them is lying and we got to get to the bottom of it. pete: both are leaking and one is lying in this particular case rachel: and this is what happens when you have leadership full of corruption full of lies they end up contradicting each other and pointing fingers at each other. somethings going to have to come out of this. you can't just let these two things stand right? pete: exactly and that's why this president and his legal counsel are coming out hard saying it's time to end this mueller probe. get it done with put it out here
6:07 am
keep the parameters tight it doesn't need to be an endless review of financial holdings over decades. was there in nine, was there collusion or not let it out let's move on. rachel: i just want to say with mccabe it has been really interesting to see how the media has come so much to his defense. you have andrea mitchell tweet ing out that i've got a solution for him. there was no such tweet for michael flynn of how he could keep his position, so it's really interesting the media weighing in but the only way as you say pete to get to the bottom of this is to put it all out there. ed: we've been hearing that andrew mccabe has said if i'm going down i'm bringing others as well and then we hear that he kept memos of some of his interactions with the president so is he taking aim at the president or the president tweet ing getting ahead of this saying spent very little time with andrew mccabe but he never took notes when he was with me. i don't believe he made memos accept to help his own agenda
6:08 am
probably at a later date same with lying james comey. can we call them fake memos? so you can see he is pushing back and pushing backward. pete: remember when james comey originally talked about his and leaked them and said what if i have tapes remember that whole thing? it's this whole idea this is only one side of the story when a person writes a memo and if there aren't recordings then there's another side of the story. ed: and a former fbi agent a special agent came on fox & friends earlier and was saying look, if you think that all the shoes have dropped you're wrong. there's more coming with this inspector general report. watch. >> this is the fbi claiming its own house. it was the fbi taking some tough medicine to get the body better and there's always a standard of zero tolerance for lying under oath. you brush aside all the politics , the inspector general again another career position cops out with an explosive report that covers more than just mccabe, it'll cover strzok, page all the players in the hillary clinton e-mail investigation and address that
6:09 am
and be very comprehensive. there's many signals that somethings coming out in april, so i think we'll have very interesting month of april. ed: remember andrew mccabe oversaw that hillary clinton e-mail investigation a short time after his wife had run for state senate in virginia got all kinds of hundreds of thousands of dollars in political money who was very close to the clintons, a lot of questions about why he did not recuse himself earlier so more shoes coming. rachel: investigating the investigators. pete: exactly. looks like we're going almost pool boomerang here. start a fake investigation and start looking into the investigators and that's a lot of investigation if you're confused so am i but the other word for it is accountability. in a country of laws not just men, there are consequences and hillary did not win the election and therefore, a lot of this -- rachel: and this is a law and order president who says he is going to drain the swamp and listen there's been a lot of people in the deep state just in the last week who are no longer shy about saying we're going to
6:10 am

by the clinton campaign to use to spy on american citizens and now, we have seen over the course of almost a year there has been no evidence of collusion, there is no evidence of cooperation or coordination we need to bring this to a close so the american people can move on. rachel: corey you bring up a very good point about mccabe and , you know, he did lie to the fbi but his statement was so self-rachel: us if you ask me, i mean it seems like he seems to have forgotten that he's the same andy who had the text message, who was mentioned in the text messages p peter strzok that had an insurance plan. >> well that's right and you know look i know it's andy's birthday so let's give him a big happy birthday gift to you today , happy to you, andy but look, the truth is when he signed up to be an fbi agent he filled out a form and he signed a document that said regardless of what he does, he will not release any information he obtained as an fbi agent without written authorization and this notion now that he's saying he's got these memorandums that he
6:19 am
took after meetings with the president where is the accountability? this is the same line that james comey gave us. why aren't these people being prosecuted and if they did take information and we know for a fact comey released it without written authorization, why aren't they being prosecuted? ed: well corey though a moment ago you said that the mueller probe needs to end and when the president's personal attorney put out a statement yesterday saying he hopes rod rosenstein en stein does the right thing overseeing the mueller probe of course are you saying and meaning a date certain like let's see what you've got you've got to end it by june 1 or are you saying robert mueller needs to be fired? >> no i'm not saying robert mueller needs to be fired what i'm saying is there has to be a definitive day where he is required to come up with a finding and end this one way or the other so you come back to congress and you say look, here is where we've been they've been doing this for almost a year and they haven't found any evidence
6:20 am
of collusion between the trump campaign because it didn't exist because i was there. we didn't speak to russians or communication and we didn't need russian dressing it just didn't exist so robert mueller has to bring that conclusion to congress and say based on the evidence that i have nothing is here it's time to end this. ed: no collusion no russian dressing but corey lewandowski wants a date certain ending this probe corey thanks for coming in rachel: corey who do you want to see go in the tank ed or pete? >> well that's a losing issue for me i refuse to vote on this. i have to be told by my boss who to vote for. rachel: coming up should the rich pay more for speeding fines a new york times op ed is making a case for it so is it a really good idea we'll debate that next ed: as you just heard polls close in just about 20 minutes. who do you want to see go in the dunk tank we've got the election night music, we'll get the billboard i hope this morning me or pete in the dunk tank vote on social media.

ed: good morning again quick headlines irish golf pro taking time out of st. patricks day to slam the pga for not limiting alcohol sales during an event and says during saturday's play he was heckled by a spectator yelling his wife's name and he says the problem is worse than ever and chalks it up to heavy drinking and the governor of massachusetts getting in on the st. patricks day celebration. republican governor charlie baker spotted in a boston bar knocking back, yes, tequilla shots and baker was in festivit ies throughout the day earlier spotted at the local parade no shots there apparently pete? pete: i mean it is boston. should the rich be forced to pay more for speeding fines?
6:25 am
the new york times writing in an op ed this, said the flat fine threatens poor people with financial ruin while letting rich people break the law without meaningful repercussions equity requires punishment that is equally felt, so the question here is what does equal mean? here to debate it sam braverman, former defense attorney and financial advisor armando. thank you both for being here sam i'll start with you. you support the idea that people of different incomes should pay different fines for the same offense how is that fair? >> well of course it's fair because the system already is built in this way so a judge is taking into consideration all the time whether or not a person can afford a fine and the constitution says clearly that you can have no unconstitutional ly excessive fine so it's a normal sort of thing. pete: if someone doesn't make any money and they commit a huge violation and they can't pay sometimes they don't. that's very different than saying i'm speeding you're speed ing i make 200 grand you make 75 grand we pay different.
6:26 am
i don't understand how that sounds fair. >> well the fact is most people in fact don't make $75,000 your average person making 25-$40,000 pete: pick your amount the point is -- >> and wall street guy making 1.2 so the guy whose working at 7.50 an hour takes him from monday to wednesday to pay his $150 fine and the wall street guy makes it by 9:15 in the morning. pete: armando, what do you say? >> i say we just really shouldn't break the law. a fine is a method to deter somebody from breaking the law right? so if we have a flat fine for everybody, we also have the point system for everybody, so regardless if somebody that's very wealthy can pay or cannot pay the fine, the point system is going to deter him from breaking the law again, so before you get into your car, if you can't afford to pay a fine, just don't break the law. fix your car.
6:27 am
when i drove on the highway this morning getting here nobody was driving the speed limit literally not a single person was driving the speed limit. it was not even an advisory. there's just nobody driving the speed limit. pete: sam where does it stop when you start making an income argument that could go in any direction for everything. now justice is not blind. it's looking at your pocket book before it makes a decision. >> well make it the alternative so for example, when somebody has a fine of $750 and they can't pay it and then they can't drive their car and then they can't work and now they become a ward of the state is that better for society? how does that improve situations and if judges are taking this into consideration well then that works, but if they don't take it into consideration -- pete: armando, same debate on taxes, a progressive tax system or flat system? what's fairness, the rich pay more or is fairness everyone pays the same? >> let me ask a better question. would it be fair for me to work harder just to pay higher fines?
6:28 am
what's my incentive here to better myself? or for anybody else for that matter? >> but fortunately you and i both make disproportionately better than everybody else and therefore we are at an advantage if i was late this morning and i said i'll be on time because i'm going to drive 100 miles an hour and if it gets me a ticket so be it i'll pay for it who cares. pete: but it could be a result of you being lucky having rich parents or working hard so couldn't this manifest people who worked hard to get to the top get hit the most. >> right that's exactly the point. why not deter them if we want the system to work we have to deter the people and if we don't deter them we don't get it. pete: the debate continues we have to leave it right there appreciate your time. still to come maria bartiromo is live here just ahead plus todd p yro is also live in northport, new york because this is a live television show getting ready to take the polar plunge for a great cause. todd get ready. i wish you were wearing that todd the pink one.

maria: the fbi has an institution has not been attacked okay? the president attacked the leadership of the fbi many times this president has come out and said the broad institution of the fbi is doing a very good job and actually trying to keep us safe but the leadership, i mean, there's a reason that 10 people within the fbi and the department of justice have been reassigned or fired. rachel: joining us on the curve very couch is maria bartiromo the host of sunday morning futures and part of the wise guys which airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern on fox news. so i love the premise of the show because it's one of the few times where people get to really talk for a long time, get ideas out and have a lot more, you know, chance to talk about these issues. maria: that's the thing you're able to sit there for an hour and actually have a detailed conversation, no yelling just an actual conversation about what's going. it's hard to do with our shows even here when you have three hours but you're doing segments
6:44 am
five minutes a piece but we set you down for an hour and talk about the issues of the day and i was honored to be with everybody at the table so looking forward to it. the fbi issue is front and center and there's no coincidence that 10 people have been reassigned at the fbi and the department of justice but i was thinking last night you know when something happens when it's domestic abuse or a shooting or whatever, when you see the fbi jackets walk in, when you see those guys and gals walk in with that navy jacket and big fbi written on the back don't you feel good? don't you feel like oh, the fbi is here. they're going to make it better. we have so much confidence in the fbi and we still do but unfortunately, the agency has been besmurched by a group of people at the leadership, that's james comey, andrew mccabe, bruce ohr at the department of justice they obviously went rogue and decided to take it upon themselves to abuse power and change the results of an
6:45 am
